Family

Bradykinin (IPR009608)

Short name: Bradykinin

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family consists of several bradykinin sequences. The skins of anuran amphibians, in addition to mucus glands, contain highly specialised poison glands, which, in reaction to stress or attack, exude a complex noxious cocktail of biologically active molecules. These secretions often contain a plethora of peptides among which bradykinin or structural variants have been identified [PMID: 12230583].
